History shows that ideas do not remain abstract for long but beget concrete concepts complete with myths, miracles, legends and icons. In course of time, compassion has been conceptualized as Karunamaya and wisdom as Manjusri, the two most popular gods of Mahayana Buddhism in Nepal and elsewhere. I am indebted to my friend Buddha Ratna Shakya for a simple description of the God of Compassion, as follows:
An ant caught in the rain Met the God of Compassion When a man picked it up And saved it from drowning.
For a definition of Manjusri, I would like to borrow the words of Venerable Dharmaloka Mahasthavir (1890-1967)-"a name given to a being.
